Association Awards

Recognising and promoting excellence in associations.

Associations lead and enhance every sector and profession with their initiatives and developments. The passion and dedication that association employees and volunteers put into their work is clear; their talent deserves to be widely recognised and rewarded, and their achievements and results shared with their best practice spread. 

The Association Awards, organised by the Association of Associations Executives, raises the profile of associations, their executives and projects, and gives them the recognition for their effort and success. 

Entrants for projects in the Association Awards are selected for the Association Success Story Programme, where the AAE facilitates the dissemination of in-depth case studies to enable association executives learn from other's experiences to achieve the best results from their projects and developments. 

All nominations are judged by a prestigious judging panel of influential association leaders and specialists, as well as experts, all focused on the continuous improvement of associations.
